Sacrilicious! Homeless Man Rudely Discards a King James on Grove Street – You Won’t Believe What Happened NextTuesday, April 8th, 2014
Here’s your bible story and there it is, having been thrown onto a crosswalk of Grove by a homeless person about 30 seconds earlier:
But lo, a passing jogger picked up the bible and put it back from whence it came, on top of a garbage bin:
The whole transaction from bin to street to bin took about a minute.
This has been Sacrilicious! Homeless Man Rudely Discards a King James on Grove Street – You Won’t Believe What Happened Next
College-Educated Woman Baffled by the SFMTA’s Horrible New Painted Lines on JFK Drive in Golden Gate ParkWednesday, November 20th, 2013
You see? She’s going the wrong way on the wrong side of the street in the door zone / loading area for cars legally parked on the eastern part of JFK

I guess that makes this Here’s What’s Wrong with the SFMTA’s Absurd JFK Bike Lanes in Golden Gate Park: #4, but I’m not saying that this is a common thing or anything. I mean, do you think she ran against traffic before these crazy bike lanes were put down? I don’t.
(And speaking of guessing, the median San Francisco resident aged 25 and over has at least one college degree, so that’s why I said college-educated woman. I mean, her appearance just screamed post-collegiate.)
In closing, those new JFK bike lanes be crazy.
Or in other words:
The Happy Morning Joggers of the Tenderloin – Could This Be the New UC Hastings Running Club, the “Legal Eagles?”Wednesday, August 21st, 2013
Usually when people run in the corrupt Twitterloin / Civic Center / Tenderloin area, it’s because they’re either victims or perpetrators, right?
So just jogging around for fun, well, that’s something new I think.

All the deets from the oldest and largest law school in the West:
“Purpose: To encourage healthy living and life balance through regular athletic activity; to promote a positive image of UC Hastings to the larger Bay Area community through involvement in charity runs; and to foster a sense of community at UC Hastings”
“NO BIB, NO BIB, NO BIB!” – A “Bandit’s” Tale of Woe: “I Got Thrown Out of the Nike Women’s Marathon”Monday, November 7th, 2011
Poor Cindy Carcamo. All she wanted to do was to run our Nike Womens Marathon last year. Check it:
“Cindy Carcamo paid $115 to enter the half-marathon portion of last year’s Nike Women’s Marathon. After months of training hard, she flew to San Francisco to run the race, only to be kicked out 40 yards short of the finish line. Her mistake? Losing her bib the morning of the race. An Orange County Register reporter, Ms. Carcamo wrote an article called, ‘My half marathon comes to a bitter end.’”
How wude! Now let’s catch the action on the Great Highway near Ocean Beach:
“A brunette in gray popped up in front of me, crashing through that daydream.
“Where’s your bib number?” she asked.
“No bib! No bib! No bib!” she yelled out to others.
In a scene worthy of a “Seinfeld” episode, I was intercepted.
I repeated my argument about the chip and the number.
Still, they wouldn’t budge and they put their hands on my shoulders.
“I’ve trained months for this race. Please let me finish,” I pleaded.
No response. Instead, they physically pushed me off the course and past the railings, casting me out like a criminal.
No official time. No finisher’s medal. No warning.”
Cindy thought her back-up mini-bib would be good enough, but no dice. Here she was during happier times, stretching in Union Square pre-race:
Apparently, Nike doesn’t want to publicize how they fight biblesss “bandits” because that gives people the idea that it’s not really necessary to pay.
Thank goodness there’s no harsh penalty like that for the Bay to Breakers Civic Party and Fun Run, right? I mean, if a one-percenter like the Mayor doesn’t need a bib, then a nobody like you certainly shouldn’t need one either, right?
Plus your registration money would just go to a hateful billionaire in Colorado anyway.
All right, train hard.
